GSA 2020 Lightning Round Submission
DH Scholarship Roundtable: Call for Proposals
German Studies Association Annual Meeting
Washington, D.C. | October 1-4, 2020

After the healthy turn-out for last year’s DH roundtable in Portland, OR, featuring lightning talks on current DH scholarship, the Digital Humanities Network of the German Studies Association (GSA) would like to continue offering this platform for sharing digital humanities projects. We therefore invite abstracts for the second annual “DH Scholarship Roundtable” at the GSA annual meeting in Washington, D.C., October 1-4, 2020.

The roundtable aims to feature up to 15 participants from all ranks and disciplines in German Studies who will share a digital humanities project in a 3-5 minute presentation, following the format of lightning talks. The project can be research- or teaching-related and can still be a work-in-progress. The brief presentation format of the lightning talk is intended to allow for time to brainstorm projects, solicit feedback, and to network.

For information on the lightning round format, see the AHA Guide to Lightning Rounds. The National Endowment for Humanities Office of Digital Humanities also has videos of recent lightning talks.

Please note that participating in this session will count as a roundtable participation, which does not conflict with giving a paper or participating in a seminar.
More information regarding the conference can be found on the GSA's website.

To submit a Lightning Round proposal, please complete this form by February 7, 2020. Please note: if you submit after February 7, your name will appear on our lineup at, but not explicitly in the GSA conference program. Please contact Evan Torner ( with any questions.
